Atlona just introduced an eight-button network keypad, Model AT-ANC-108D, for Atlona IP-controlled AV switchers equipped for single channel output, including single channel mirrored output components. Designed for remote configuration, the keypad uses Power over Ethernet technology a single CATx cable handles both signal and power.
Combined with Atlona IP-controllable switching products for huddle spaces, classrooms and conference rooms, the network keypad has eight soft-touch backlit buttons and acts as a remote IP-based controller to send commands to the switcher. The switcher in turn responds to the commands or conveys them via RS232 to control other devices, such as video displays.
The AT-ANC-108D’s compact and shallow depth fits into a U.S. one-gang junction box for placement in walls or switch-enclosures built into tables and cabinetry. In cases where powering by POE is not practical or desired, it can also be run by an optional, external 5 VDC power supply.
The AT-ANC-108D is shipping for $399.99 and here are all the specs.
